NEA 2023 Big Read: Life of Nancy Cooper Russell with Mary Jane Bradbury
12:00 PM (America/Denver)
Missoula Public Library
Against the backdrop of the social and political reform of the early 1900s, Nancy Cooper Russell was a woman ahead of her time. A self-taught businesswoman with the ability to take charge, Nancy helped Charles M. Russell become the highest paid living artist of his time. Art historians consistently give her credit for being the reason the world has the extraordinary Russell paintings and sculptures that grace galleries and private collections today. Historic interpreter Mary Jane Bradbury brings Nancy Russell to life and describes the world of art that celebrated the myth of the west at the beginning of the 20th. This interactive program is appropriate for all lovers of art and good stories- from children to adults. Mary Jane Bradbury is an historic interpreter and scholar who brings history to life for audiences of all ages. She is an artist in residence for the CM Russell Museum in Great Falls and the Montana Historical Society in Helena.
